Directory and Resource Administrator 7.5

Microsoft Windows NT 4.0

The Password Last Set 'pwdlastset' for computers in a Windows NT 4.0 domain always displays 12/29/1899 6:00:00 PM.

The Computer Password Aging report reports incorrect data for Windows NT 4.0 domains.

The Last Password Change information imported from a Windows NT 4.0 domain is incorrect.


This issue is addressed in NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator and Exchange Administrator version 7.5 Hotfix 45390.

Hotfix 45390 improves how Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) imports the Last Password Change information from a Windows NT domain for the Computer Password Aging report. With this hotfix, DRA imports the Password Last Set information for computer accounts in Windows NT domains.

Note: This Hotfix requires DRA version 7.5.

To install this hotfix:

  1. Close all DRA user interfaces.
  2. Run the DRA75000_Hotfix45390.msi file on on each primary and secondary Administration server computer.

This hotfix modifies the Accounts.dll file on the Administration server computer. By default, this file is located in the Program Files\NetIQ\DRA folder.
